A LARGE NUMBER OF PEOPLE HAVE MAGNESIUM DEFICIENCY.
It is reported that 60% of Americans are lacking in magnesium and I am sure that Americans are not the only ones.
This information is not surprising as our agricultural producers and farmers does not need magnesium in order to be able to grow their products effectively; therefore it is not included in agricultural fertilisers.
Whilst this site is primarily about stem cells we must also maintain an affective diet as without proper nutrition we cannot expect the marvels of stem cells to repair a body which is short of nutrients.
There are a number of symptoms caused by magnesium deficiency.
The more common ones are dizziness, muscle weakness and fatigue. It can also cause tremors and muscle spasms. It has also been reported to cause irregular heartbeat.
In a more advanced stage it can affect appetite and even cause nausea and vomiting.
It can also cause insulin resistance which often turns to diabetes.
This is only an abbreviated list of symptoms as there are many more proven and a lot of which are suspected but as yet unproven.
This is a lot of symptoms for a simple thing so easy to treat and at very little expense.
There has been a vast amount of work done on the importance of this mineral and it amazes me that its shortage is not better recognised as its availability in our food can be very restricted.
Magnesium citrate or orotate are both excellent products.
Magnesium carbonate is much cheaper, but in my opinion is a waste of money. Magnesium citrate or Magnesium orotate are a bit more expensive but well worth the additional expense.
These supplements are generally available without prescription and my advice would be to procure either of the above as our ability to absorb this mineral is extremely limited.
For a more comprehensive study on magnesium and the problems which can be produced due to its deficiency I suggest you go to this comprehensive report about magnesium citrate.
